Patient Information & Forms
Insurance coverage is verified prior to being seen. Co-pays, deductibles and non-covered services will be collected at the time of the visit. If you are not covered by one of our participating plans, as a courtesy, we will file your claim for you, but you will be ultimately responsible for any account balance.
We ask that you present your insurance card at each visit. It is your responsibility to provide us with the correct information to bill your insurance.
- If you have a change of address or telephone number(s), please notify our office immediately
- Your insurance is a contract between you, your employer, and the insurance company. We are not a party to that contract. It is very important that you understand the provisions of your policy. We cannot guarantee payment of all claims. If your insurance company pays only a portion of the bill or rejects your claim, any contact or explanation should be made to you, their policy holder.
- We will collect your deductible, co-payment, or charge for a non-covered services at the time of your visit. If you have a balance after an insurance payment from a previous service, we will also ask for that payment. We accept cash, checks, and major credit cards.
- If we do not participate with your insurance company, you will be expected to make payment in full at the time service is rendered.
- If your insurance denies our charges, or does not pay us in a timely manner, or if your account becomes delinquent we reserve the right to refer your account to a collection agency and to be reported to the credit bureau.
- No show or missed appointments – We understand there may be times when you are unable to keep an appointment, but we ask the courtesy of a phone call to cancel an appointment by you to avoid any cancellation fees.
